Death Is Nothing At All;...

Death is nothing at all; I have only slipped away into the next room; I am I, and you are you; Whatever we were to each other, that we still are; Call me by my old familiar name; speak to me in the easy way which you always used; Put no difference in your tone; wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow; Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together; Play, smile, think of me, pray for me; Let my name be ever the household word that it always was; let it be spoken without effect; without the trace of a shadow on it; Life means all that it ever meant; It is the same that it ever was;; there is unbroken continuity; Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?; I am waiting for you, for an interval; somewhere very near, just round the corner; And all is well; Canon Henry Scott Holland; Death is Nothing At All.
